Umphrey’s McGee returned to the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion in Boston last night, and they brought The Shady Horns with them for a jam-packed show filled with lots of fun improvisation.The band kicked things off with a huge four-song movement, starting off with 2013 UMBowl instrumental “Gents”, before moving into old favorite “White Mans Moccasins”, followed up by a raging “Ringo”, before they landed on a high-energy “Miss Tinkles Overture”. Next up, Umphrey’s performed their multi-part fan-favorite “2×2”, featuring an incredible guitar solo from recent birthday boy Brendan Bayliss. The band then invited out featured guests Eric “Benny” Bloom and Ryan Zoidis, who brought the thunder with huge versions of “Speak Up”, “Headphones & Snowcones”, and “Example 1” to end set one with a serious bang.After a short break, Umphrey’s returned to the stage for a wild version of “Dump City”. The song is always well-received by fans, and delivered it’s usual healthy dose of improv – truly an excellent way to open up set two. “Cemetary Walk 1” followed, with Umphrey’s crushing the piano-driven, prog-rock song. The dancey “Day Nurse” followed, which eventually winded its way into a perfect version of their classic “Divisions”. After the huge “Divisions”, Umphrey’s picked the energy up even more with their metal rager “Wizard Burial Ground”. After the head-banging of “WBG”, the band invited The Shady Horns back out for a funky version of “I Got Love” before closing things out with the relative rarity of “Woman Wine & Song”.The band took their customary encore break, then returned to the stage for a pulsating version of “Bad Friday”, bringing the horns back out for one more high energy moment before bringing the evening to a close.Thanks to these Umphreaks, we can enjoy some fan-shot footage from the Boston takeover:Speak Up w/ The Shady Horns [via Kyle Miller] You can also stream the full audio from the show, courtesy of taper opsopcopolis, below:Umphrey’s McGee is at The Peach Music Festival next, playing an “After Midnight” set this evening.

Press Association “I speak to him every day, he comes to training quite a lot and he sees the way we work but in terms of going on past this season, no I have not had any chats with the chairman.” Swansea host fellow strugglers West Brom this weekend in a game which Monk feels will be crucial to the Welsh club’s survival prospects. “You get defining games throughout season, and this is definitely one of them,” he said. “We want the three points and so do West Brom. “It’s a good game, a big game, but we’re in front of our home fans and it is important that we put on a performance to get the win.” Pepe Mel has failed to win a match since he was appointed by West Brom in January and the Baggies are now only out of the relegation zone on goal difference. There is a chance that West Brom will come up against Swansea striker Michu, who is close to full fitness following a three-month ankle injury layoff. “He’s trained well this week,” Monk said. “We’ve been assessing him every day and we tailor the training it to him. He has taken part in most of the sessions this week. “He’s been great and looked sharp on Thursday and we’ll make a judgement on him on Friday.” Koeman’s agent Guido Albers told the BBC that the former Holland defender is interested in moving to the Barclays Premier League when his contract expires with Feyenoord in the summer. Albers said Koeman was “willing” to move to the Liberty Stadium as Swansea are a “fantastic club with a lot of potential.” Garry Monk does not care that Ronald Koeman’s agent has been touting his client for the Swansea job. Monk was appointed as Swansea boss “for the foreseeable future” following the sacking of Michael Laudrup. Swansea are just four points from safety after failing to win any of their last six games, but Monk is not concerned by the comments coming from Koeman’s camp. “I don’t care – it doesn’t affect me,” the Swansea manager told a press conference. “This is the business we are in. “Players and managers will always be linked with other clubs, but I can’t worry about that. “Names will always be linked when a manager changes, and I guess this shows that everyone wants to work in the Premier League. It’s the most exciting league in the world so I don’t blame people for trying to get linked with certain jobs. “But I just have to focus on what I am doing, and that always means the next game.” Monk has claimed five points from his four league games in charge. The former Swans captain remains in the dark over whether he will continue in his position beyond the end of the season. “I have not held any deep talks with the chairman,” Monk added.
